Weapon Open System Architecture (WOSA) Training by Tonex
Weapon Open System Architecture (WOSA) Training introduces several key concepts and applications that are essential elements of a Network Centric and Joint Battlespace Infosphere application.
Participants will also learn about The Department of Defense’s (DoD) modular open systems approach (MOSA) to design systems with highly cohesive, loosely coupled, and severable modules that can be competed separately and acquired from independent vendors.
WOSA will establish the potential gains in warfighting capability due to the enabling technologies of collaborative planning, information mining, and adaptive embedded resource management within a Network-Centric information architecture.
Learning Objectives: Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the fundamental concepts and principles of Weapon Open System Architecture (WOSA).
- Design and implement open system architectures for weapon systems, ensuring interoperability and scalability.
- Evaluate the benefits of WOSA, such as reduced life cycle costs and increased flexibility in defense system development.
- Identify and mitigate common challenges and risks associated with open system architectures.
- Analyze case studies and real-world examples to gain practical insights into WOSA implementation.
- Develop strategies for incorporating WOSA into their defense projects and applications.
Audience: This course is intended for:
- Defense engineers and professionals
- Systems architects and designers
- Project managers involved in weapon system development
- Government and military personnel responsible for defense procurement
- Anyone interested in gaining expertise in Weapon Open System Architecture (WOSA) for defense applications
